Guide Review - American Recordings - Johnny Cash
This magnificent disc is the result. Stripped of all fancy production, Cash is presented at his bare-bones acoustic best, singing songs from the chilling "Delia's Gone" to the inspirational "Why Me Lord?"
Two of the tracks were recorded live at the Viper Room to an appreciative audience. This is Cash, the first of the award-winning "American Recordings" series. Plain and simple and great.
